Photo Sessions

Meet some of my latest models! I had one maternity session & my first newborn session...all within walking distance. The newborn session was an eye-opener, for sure. It is definitely a process & I definitely have lots of room for improvement (and more ideas for the next one). However, it's so awesome to be around teeny tiny babies & their loving families. She is a sweetie...

Can't wait to meet the little guy/girl in this belly, too!
I just love the wind-blown hair & bright eyes in this one!

Our Fat Cat

This morning, Ryan took Tamago to the vet for his annual check-up. Bad news for the Big Guy - he has to go on a diet! In the past year, he's gained 1 pound, so I guess the vet felt it was a good idea to get him slim & trim again...Ryan and I were kind of hoping he'd get to the 20 lb mark they (Ragdolls) average at, but he only weighed in at 15.25 lbs today, so I guess we won't hit that 'goal.' It's hard to believe he's gained weight from all of the running away/avoiding Aryn he's been doing in the past year!

Here's a picture of him when we got him...a mere 2 pounder.

And, this is right before Aryn's arrival...

Can you tell I'm at a lack of exciting info to blog about? Must be the rain... : ) OH, I have been editing some maternity photos I took for one of my neighbors, so I'll try to pick a favorite or two to post in the next day or so...

Real Simple Daily Thought

All the sorrow and trouble of this world is caused by unhappy people...The search for contentment is, therefore, not merely a self-benefiting act, but also a generous gift to the world.
